Driving Directions from City of Peoria
Difficult to drive to. Easiest is FROM the City of Peoria, drive US Route 24 thru Bartonville towards the Illinois Route 9 cut-off to Pekin. Just past the Cilco Power station & Cilco Lane, turn RIGHT up the hill. Use caution!! This can be a tricky hill to climb. 
Cemetery sits at the bluff of the hill overlooking Route 24 & the Cilco station.

 

Driving Directions from Pekin, Tazewell County, Illinois
From Pekin, IL go across the Illinois River on Rt. 9 for about 2 miles to Rt. 24. 
Turn right ( Rt. 24 East) and travel 1/2 mile.
 Watch for a small gravel road on the left side of the highway that travels up the hillside. 
Follow the gravel lane up the hill for .4 of a mile.
You will come to a Y with a house on the right and a smaller gravel lane to the left. 
Take the lane to the left for a few hundred feet to the cemetery. 
It is a small, well cared for, cemetery but like most, does have some stones on the ground. - Al and Carole Martin, 2006
